I got this idea from another blog I read (www.bakerella.com), and knew the kids would love it. We melted some of those colored candy melts you can buy at Joann's or Hobby Lobby. Then I blew up a few water balloons we had (thanks Mimi!) and dipped them in the melted coating. After sitting in the freezer during dinner, they were ready to use!
Of course, Corinne wanted to use the purple candies.
